Iam upgrading my bosses computer and he currently has a intel 2160 i modded it to run 2.4 ghz he has 2 gig ddr2 and a 8800gt video card. It just wont handel bf3 well. It meets all the min requirements but i think on 64 player maps it will fail. He is on a limited budget. I want to replace the cpu and motherboard now and in a month or so do the video card. I believe the biggest bottleneck is the cpu after seeing some people getting 35-40 fps in the beta on a 8800gt. Will a amd x4 640 or a 840 be good to pair with a 6850/70 in a couple months. Keep in mind there will be no O.C. on this hardware. I need somthing to handle med to high settings on 1400x900 res monitor. Thanks for the help in advance. And my budget for the cpu and motherboard is about 100 dollars so iam buying used. I have 2x2 gig ddr3 1333 memory already.
